Code of Ethics

It is the duty of all concerned with school athletics:

  • To emphasize the proper ideals of sportsmanship, ethical conduct and fair play.
  • To eliminate all possibilities which tend to destroy the best values of the game.
  • To stress the values derived from playing the game fairly.
  • To show cordial courtesy to visiting teams and officials.
  • To establish a happy relationship between visitors and hosts.
  • To respect the integrity and judgment of sports officials.
  • To achieve a thorough understanding and acceptance of the rules of the game and the standards of eligibility.
  • To encourage leadership, use of initiative, and good judgment by the players on the team.
  • To recognize that the purpose of athletics is to promote physical, mental, moral, social, and emotional well- being of the individual players.
  • To remember that an athletic contest is only a game–not a matter of life and death for player, coach, school, official, fan or community.
